Happy Father’s Day and Bonus Spartan Dad’s Workout!

Father's Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.  I hope you all get to spend time together today and cherish the time you have with your dad and you kiddos.  Today is going to be great! We are going to start off with my special gift to my hubby a workout (don’t worry we got him cards and a pair of workout shorts too), then a yummy homemade bacon, sun-dried tomato and spinach frittata and church.  Later we are going to a BBQ at my Aunt’s house today and she has a pool, which mean’s major swimming!  It is a potluck, so I am going to make this yummy salad from another blog I love Lexi’s Clean Kitchen.  It’s a honey lime fruit salad with homemade cinnamon sugar chips.  It sounds delicious and healthy too!

As you may or may not know my hubby and some friends  talked me into doing a Spartan Race.  I am scared!  However, facing our fears is what makes us stronger and I am always up for a challenge.  Today’s workout is inspired by my Spartan training and my love for running.  I hope you give it a try!IMG_1068[1]
